Kanoe trip in Allepey. Stayed with our local couchsurfing host Antony. Had a nice accomodation for free as it usually goes and is couchsurfing policy. However, we kind of felt ( or at least I did) a bit indebted for letting us stay in his nice Bamboo house. Therefore I was more reluctant to take one of his travel agency services.
The kanoe trip was very expensive; 1000,- Rs and even tough it was nice, it definitely was NOT worth the money. We should rather have taken a local ferry for 10 Rs,- to Kotyam and/or rented a kanoe from local villagers for a few hours for 100-300,- Rs max. Next time i will know and i obviously left Antony a reasonable reference on Couchsurfing ( not just the Kanoe trip but my whole experience while staying with him)
